Placeholder Image
By John A. ScocosSecretary of the Wisconsin Department of Veterans AffairsVeterans Day in Wisconsin is a special moment of reflection for the more than 427,000 veterans in this state. Their service spans not only the last century but also reaches into the 21st century.As I reflect on my second deployment to Iraq I am acutely aware of the physical, mental, and psychological costs borne by our military men and women currently serving in our country's conflicts. And these costs do not end with their active duty assignments.
